Kukla's Korner Hockey

Darren McCarty, whose hard-working, physical style of play made him a favorite in Hockeytown, on Monday took one step closer to leaving Detroit. The 33-year-old forward was waived by the Red Wings along with Derian Hatcher and Ray Whitney. If the trio go unclaimed as expected, the Red Wings have the option of buying out their contracts and making them unrestricted free agents. In other words, the 11-season relationship between McCarty and the Wings has effectively ended. "It's obviously disappointing because this is the only place I ever played," McCarty said during an interview on WDFN-AM in Detroit. "I'll always be a Red Wing at heart, and it'll always be home. What can you say? I'll try to take a positive out of it."
